Allie

We are pleased to introduce Allie Bender of Pet Harmony, LLC. She believes in working with animals by addressing underlying causes behind undesirable behaviors, as well as working with people to find the best solutions for your situation and household.

Allie graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in animal science from Iowa State University and has been training animals professionally since 2012. In 2014 she moved to Utah to work as a dog trainer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and in 2015 she was promoted to Lead Dog Behavior Consultant. During her time at Best Friends, Allie was fortunate to be invited to speak multiple times at the Best Friends National Conference, make TV and commercial appearances, and provide nationwide behavior and training workshops with esteemed colleagues.

In 2016, Allie returned to Illinois to be closer to family and to start her new business, Pet Harmony. She is a certified professional dog trainer–knowledge assessed (CPDT-KA), a shelter behavior affiliate (SBA) through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, and an Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) Canine Life and Social Skills (C.L.A.S.S.) evaluator, and is certified by TAGteach at the primary level.
